@gadicc, I added some pacman hooks to handle setting/unsetting the immutable flag:

Sets immutable flag after install/upgrade:

Operation = Upgrade
Operation = Install
Type = Package
Target = crashplan-pro

Description = Set immutability of Crashplan Pro upgrade directory
When = PostTransaction
Exec = /usr/bin/bash -c "rm -rf /opt/crashplan/upgrade/*; chattr +i /opt/crashplan/upgrade"`

Unsets immutable flag before upgrade/remove:

Operation = Upgrade
Operation = Remove
Type = Package
Target = crashplan-pro

Description = Undo immutability of Crashplan Pro upgrade directory
When = PreTransaction
Exec = /usr/bin/bash -c "chattr -i /opt/crashplan/upgrade"```

Something went wrong with the latest update for me and there were leftover files during the upgrade causing a conflict. If you run into this, uninstalling CP, manually deleting the conflicting files, and installing the updated package should solve any issue.

Thank you @achilleas.k. CrashPlan has its deficits but overall I've found it reliable and the best cloud backup value for large data archives, and appreciate you accepting responsibility for maintaining its Arch package.

Just so you know, I figured out how to manually install CrashPlan utilizing it's native installer and systemd service yesterday, with the only thing necessary being the manual copying of the nlib files. However, though I was able to do a full initial adoption and backup, and then some test restores, I still want to do more testing before declaring it fully functional. I'm especially curious as to whether or not the auto update will work with my near-native installation.

For those unfamiliar with the history of CrashPlan, this AUR package was initially developed when Code42 didn't support systemd, but now that they do their native installer seems to work much better. So I'm going to look into how they identify the distro when installing, and then attempt to insert whatever information is necessary to have their native installer support Arch. Hopefully after that this package will be much easier to maintain. Unfortunately I have a lot of other work I have to do at the same time, so it may be a week or more before I can get back to it. If things work out I'll let you know though and send in an alternate PKGBUILD for your consideration. Or of course you can look into this alternate development route as well if you wish and have the time.

Once again, thank you for taking the reigns of this beast! :)

Adopted and updated.

Sorry I have ended up disowning, due to changing to an Arm based platform I can't run this, and had no luck converting this package to multiplatform.

All the luck with this in the future

There is a breaking change in SLF4J 2.0.0. Is CrashPlan ready? I haven't found which logger CrashPlan uses.

The current URL is not valid, maybe it's

I could co-maintain to push updates on occasions like this last one. That said, I've been considering moving away from CrashPlan for a while now, so I don't know how long I'll be interested in staying up to date with new releases.
